Josh and Bailey EARLY in the morn to watch the Bats
(This is where they sat and the bats flew over their heads.)
We went to see the Carlsbad Caverns this weekend. It is only about 2 hours away from Roswell. Jake, Josh and Bailey woke up at 4am to go and watch the Bats return back into caverns. They said there were millions and millions that flew over their heads and back into the cave. Then later that afternoon we all went to the caverns and did the tour, which was family fun and educational according to Josh. (As well as "Man, I better not get Bat guanno (poop) on me. Jenny was worried and got after us when we talked to loud because she didnt want us to wake up the bats.... Zane sleep through most of it. It was interesting and the tour took over 3 hours to do with the kids.. we walked and walked and walked. Jake rented these audio devices for the kids to listen to at certain points of the trail and they would tell the kids about the history of the part of the cave. They loved to listen and I was so glad that there was an elevator at the end... that took us all back to the top.
